Tricky part is to hold one side against the manufactured head, flush, so that the shop head ends up flush on the angled opposite side.
Ah... Those were the magic words: "...the dies are angled." Now I get it. Thanks much! I already ordered the pinned dies!

Default Cleaveland RV-14 Elevator Dies

I am also using the "pinned dies" from Cleaveland Aircraft Tool for my Elevator/Trim Tab trailing edges. So far, I've completed the Trim Tab and the dies produced a near perfect trailing edge. Well worth the $25.00 in my opinion.

Just FYI: Cleaveland states these dies are only for the RV-14 Trailing Edge Wedge and will not work on the rest of the -14 control surfaces.

After regrinding the angle I used them to set the aileron trailing edge rivets also using no glue or tape.
